Is It Any Good?

Many kids and parents lack experience in social distancing, and this app helps to illustrate it in a safe, concrete way – once users get the hang of it. It’s somewhat difficult at first to figure out how to place the hologram in a meaningful way. For example, it doesn’t make sense to place it hovering over a table or in mid-air. Kids will only be able to grasp the social-distancing concept if the hologram is placed on the floor and, better yet, next to something like an area rug that can be used as a point of reference. This allows kids to clearly visualize the safe distance of six feet. The information that the app provides is useful, but the text is set against the camera background making it difficult to read. Separate screens to house this information and tips for how to place the hologram might be useful. All in all, this is a solid tool to help kids get a sense of what safe social distancing really means.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
